Jim Cissell and the Reunion Committee

P.S. It was brought to my attention that I forgot to thank all of the Committee Members for help with our last meeting in July. Sorry, Sue Kinney Weaver. Thanks for all your help.

November 21, 2023: Paula Hankins Ralph passed from complications of Parkinsons. Memorial service is December 30th in Bellevue. See In Memoriam.

June 2023: Paul Kaiser passed in hospice care April 10, 2023 after chemo and radiation treatment for lip cancer. He is survived by his wife, Cindy and his two sons. His twin sister, Polly, has had her hands full taking care of Paul, as well as her Mom and husband, Roy, also now deceased.

July 22, 2023: 21 of your classmates (mostly the reunion committee) attended a mini-reunion at Leslie Harris's clubhouse in Federal Way. In addition to the two afternoon/evening functions and Sunday brunch at the DoubleTree, we looked into a boat cruise but they are WAY too expensive. Some classmates talked about a picnic at a local park. How many would like to do that? What park(s)? Any other activities you would like to include? We also discussed using some of our surplus to raffle off some cool door prizes. Thoughts?

On August 25th there was a Reunion for Classes 1962 through 1964 at Coulon Park in Renton. Rod Claus was going to attend. I'll try and get a report from him.

June 2023: Sue Kinney Weaver reports that Mical Erickson Holcomb passed recently from ketoacidosis. She is survived by her husband, Leroy, 4 children, and 6 grandchildren.

September 2021: Our last full Reunion Committee meeting was September 21, 2021. We canceled our meeting November 18, 2022, due to Vicki Langbehn's illness. Vicki passed on December 14th from a massive brain bleed after several strokes. Nickey Derry passed on November 22nd. Sue Bonn's husband, Sam, passed November 14, 2022. Teacher and Coach Gerald Ramey passed in May, 2022. Jim Arkills passed in April, 2022. Larry Martini passed on February 22, 2022. Here's his tribute service https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_uWmZfHWdA If you know of any others, or have any other Classmate news, please email Jim Cissell Jim@voiceguy.com.

George Breeden's wife Barbara fell back in November and landed on her face. There were no broken bones, but the ER missed a brain bleed. She was released, but a month later felt weak in her left arm and leg. She was rushed to the hospital where they sucessfully removed a brain clot and bleeding. She returned home from acute care January 12th and is now doing well at home with the use of a walker or cane. Pam Niel had a fall, broke several bones, and was in rehab for several months.

Please, keep your Classmates Profile complete and current. If you have problems or questions, email Polly at Brandy1946@aol.com.

See you at our 60th!

Our 50th Reunion--August, 2014--189 classmates and guests attended!

Nobody wanted it to end. The food was amazing, the libations kept flowing, we laughed until we cried--and cried until we laughed. The years pealed away as we saw inside each other the little kid whom we had grown up with so many years ago. It was magic! Lee Gagnon Whipple's daughter attended and texted her friend that "for folks their age, they are really loud!" Even the spouses had a blast! They discovered that we have a very special class! See pics on the 50th Reunion Photos page. Post your own photos at the bottom of that page.
